The purpose of the present study is to investigate the effect of pilates training on cognitive functions in patient with stroke


Stroke remains a primary cause of morbidity throughout the world mainly because of its effect on cognition. Individuals can recover from physical disability resulting from stroke, but might be unable to return to their previous occupations or independent life because of cognitive impairments.

Post-stroke cognitive impairment is not a unitary syndrome but incorporates a variety of deficits in multiple domains such as attention, executive functions , memory, language and visuoperceptual abilities. Cognitive impairment occurs in up to 64% of people who have had a stroke and has been associated with a 3-fold increase in risk for mortality, institutionalization and decreased instrumental activities of daily living function.

Pilates training was developed by Joseph H. Pilates .It belong to a group of so-called Body-Mind Exercises, where the focus is on controlled movement, posture, and breathing .Pilates (pronounced: puh-lah-teez) improves mental and physical well-being , increases flexibility through controlled movements done as mat exercises.

Pilates training improve cognitive functions through increasing blood and oxygen flow to the brain , support neuronal survival in the developping brain ,Generate new neurons ,Provides mood enhancement ,Increases neurotransmitters and Neurotrophins assure the survival of neurons in areas responsible for learning, memory and higher thinking.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.

Therapeutic modalities frequently used in PHYSICAL THERAPY (SPECIALTY) by physical therapists or physiotherapists to promote, maintain, or restore the physical and physiological well-being of an individual.

Persons trained in PHYSICAL THERAPY SPECIALTY to make use of PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES to prevent, correct, and alleviate movement dysfunction.

The auxiliary health profession by which PHYSICAL THERAPISTS make use of PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES to prevent, correct, and alleviate movement dysfunction of anatomic or physiological origin.

Instructional programs in the care and development of the body, often in schools. The concept does not include prescribed exercises, which is EXERCISE THERAPY.
